False Dichotomy June 24th-26th by Susan Allbert

I am very excited to be part of this show curated by the wonderful Libby Clarke. I'll be showing a new series of prints, this time on t-shirts and all part of a collaboration with the amazing Japanese master indigo dyers Buaisou Brooklyn. We've been experimenting with laser cutting and Katagami, mixing traditional methods of dyeing and printing with new technologies

The exhibition centers on fine art printmaking that intersects with, depends upon, and even conquers high technology. Invited artists use data, sensors, alternate processes, wearables, performance, and other technologies to produce multiples, texts, and other sorts of editions.
